FLX1 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"FLX1" - Protein required for transport of flavin adenine dinucleotide in Saccharomyces cerevisiae
Network nodes represent proteins
splice isoforms or post-translational modifications are collapsed, i.e. each node represents all the proteins produced by a single, protein-coding gene locus.
Node Color
colored nodes:
query proteins and first shell of interactors
white nodes:
second shell of interactors
Node Content
empty nodes:
proteins of unknown 3D structure
filled nodes:
some 3D structure is known or predicted
Edges represent protein-protein associations
associations are meant to be specific and meaningful, i.e. proteins jointly contribute to a shared function; this does not necessarily mean they are physically binding each other.
Known Interactions
from curated databases
experimentally determined
Predicted Interactions
gene neighborhood
gene fusions
gene co-occurrence
protein homology

FLX1Protein required for transport of flavin adenine dinucleotide (FAD), a synthesis product of riboflavin, across the mitochondrial membrane; Transport of FAD from the cytosol to the mitochondrial matrix (311 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Riboflavin kinase, phosphorylates riboflavin to form riboflavin monophosphate (FMN), which is a necessary cofactor for many enzymes; localizes to microsomes and to the mitochondrial inner membrane; Catalyzes the phosphorylation of riboflavin (vitamin B2) to form flavin mononucleotide (FMN) coenzyme (218 aa)
Subunit B of the eight-subunit V1 peripheral membrane domain of the vacuolar H+-ATPase (V-ATPase), an electrogenic proton pump found throughout the endomembrane system; contains nucleotide binding sites; also detected in the cytoplasm; Non-catalytic subunit of the peripheral V1 complex of vacuolar ATPase. V-ATPase is responsible for acidifying a variety of intracellular compartments in eukaryotic cells. It is an electrogenic proton pump that generates a proton motive force of 180 mv, inside positive and acidic, in the vacuolar membrane vesicles (517 aa)
Putative flavin-dependent monooxygenase; involved in ubiquinone (Coenzyme Q) biosynthesis; localizes to the matrix face of the mitochondrial inner membrane in a large complex with other ubiquinone biosynthetic enzymes; human COX6 can rescue a yeast /.../utant and is implicated in steroid-resistant nephrotic syndrome (SRNS); FAD-dependent monooxygenase required for the C5-ring hydroxylation during ubiquinone biosynthesis. Catalyzes the hydroxylation of 3-hexaprenyl-4-hydroxybenzoic acid (HHB) to 3- hexaprenyl-4,5-dihydroxybenzoic acid (DHHB). The electrons required for the hydroxylatio [...] (479 aa)
Mitochondrial GTP/GDP transporter, essential for mitochondrial genome maintenance; has a role in mitochondrial iron transport; member of the mitochondrial carrier family; Mitochondrial GTP/GDP transporter required for GTP uptake and GDP exit from mitochondria. Involved in mitochondrial iron transport and essential for mitochondrial genome maintenance (300 aa)
Squalene epoxidase, catalyzes the epoxidation of squalene to 2,3-oxidosqualene; plays an essential role in the ergosterol-biosynthesis pathway and is the specific target of the antifungal drug terbinafine; Catalyzes the first oxygenation step in sterol biosynthesis and is suggested to be one of the rate-limiting enzymes in this pathway (496 aa)
Kynurenine 3-monooxygenase; required for the de novo biosynthesis of NAD from tryptophan via kynurenine; expression regulated by Hst1p; putative therapeutic target for Huntington disease; Catalyzes the hydroxylation of L-kynurenine (L-Kyn) to form 3-hydroxy-L-kynurenine (L-3OHKyn). Required for synthesis of quinolinic acid (460 aa)
Nucleoporin involved in nucleocytoplasmic transport, binds to either the nucleoplasmic or cytoplasmic faces of the nuclear pore complex depending on Ran-GTP levels; also has a role in chromatin organization; Functions as a component of the nuclear pore complex (NPC). NPC components, collectively referred to as nucleoporins (NUPs), can play the role of both NPC structural components and of docking or interaction partners for transiently associated nuclear transport factors. Active directional transport is assured by both, a Phe-Gly (FG) repeat affinity gradient for these transport facto [...] (720 aa)
Ran GTPase binding protein; involved in nuclear protein import and RNA export, ubiquitin-mediated protein degradation during the cell cycle; shuttles between the nucleus and cytoplasm; is essential; homolog of human RanBP1; Important for the export of protein containing nuclear export signal (NES) out of the nucleus. Stimulates the GTPase activity of GSP1 and GSP2 (201 aa)
Hexaprenyl pyrophosphate synthetase, catalyzes the first step in ubiquinone (coenzyme Q) biosynthesis; Assembly of polyisoprenoid side chains. The polyprenyl synthase of coenzyme Q biosynthesis catalyzes the formation from isopentenyl diphosphate of all trans-polyprenyl pyrophosphates generally ranging in length of between 6 and 10 isoprene units depending on the species (473 aa)
Essential protein of the mitochondrial intermembrane space, forms a complex with Tim9p (TIM10 complex) that delivers hydrophobic proteins to the TIM22 complex for insertion into the inner membrane; Mitochondrial intermembrane chaperone that participates in the import and insertion of multi-pass transmembrane proteins into the mitochondrial inner membrane. Also required for the transfer of beta-barrel precursors from the TOM complex to the sorting and assembly machinery (SAM complex) of the outer membrane. Acts as a chaperone-like protein that protects the hydrophobic precursors from ag [...] (93 aa)
